Advice for Parents
There is an increasing reduction in children attending A&E and seeking medical advice during the COVID 19 crisis. Much of this is due to the misunderstanding that all NHS services are focusing on COVID and normal services are not ‘open’. The following resources have been approved by NHS England for distribution to support parents and carers in when to seek help and advice and which service they should contact.
The following link is a video produced locally by two clinicians (and approved by NHSE/I) to inform parents of the services available and when to seek help : https://youtu.be/u5Mgm1cmptw
Also, attached below is a poster which gives further advice re decision making if you have a child unwell or injured at home.
